Penmon Point is one of our favourite family destinations for a spot of rockpooling.
How well do any of us really know the place where we live? Do you know any local secrets? It is easy to be so comfortable with our surroundings and routine and not look beyond them to do or try something new. When was the last time you walked on a beach or sat out on a clear night and watched the stars?
We moved to North Wales with a young family in 2012. Slowly, we’ve got to know our local area pretty well. Yet we are still regularly surprised by beautiful views and sunsets, new places to visit, excellent cafés, talented producers and artisan crafters. And the wealth of outdoor activities right on our doorstep.
This section of Keeping It Local is dedicated to sharing just a few local secrets as we come across them. It might just help a few of us to see our surroundings from a different perspective. To try something new. Occasionally just sit back and take in the beauty that lies all around us. Or to head for somewhere that makes really good cake! Try Pensychnant Conservation Centre or the Hidden Gardens of Plas Cadnant. Learn more about our Carneddau ponies or cycle along Lon las Cefni. Four ideas to consider to start with.
And if you live in North Wales and have your own local secret that you think other people might like to share and enjoy, do get in touch. We could be adding your ideas to our “secret” list.
